2017 Volkswagen Atlas: Pilot Rival Debuts Soon

The Honda Pilot has definitely been getting all the attention right now but that might end soon as Volkswagen prepared to show off their upcoming new 3-row SUV model.

Volkswagen has not made any confirmation yet but new reports are suggesting that the upcoming new 3-row SUV will be coming in with an Atlas badge. This started after Automobilwoche reported that Volkswagen filed a trademark application for the Atlas.

The new SUV will be showed off at the media event in Santa Monica later this month and it will be making its official public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show which will be happening mid of November.

The Atlas will come riding on the MQB platform and will be powered by a 2.0 liter inline 4 engine that will be offering about 238hp. There is also a 3.6 liter V6 engine that will be offering about 280hp.

We still do not know what the Atlas will be offering but do you think the Honda Pilot should start to worry now?
